Rubens Barrichello

Having been the last man through into Q2 Barrichello only missed out on a place in the final ten by two-hundredths of a second.

He moved up to ninth at the start but KERS cooling problems left him vulnerable and Nick Heidfeld overtook him.

Powerless to defend, he was passed by Heidfeld (again), Vitaly Petrov and Felipe Massa on consecutive laps at one point.

Pastor Maldonado

Spun twice in the wet first practice session and went off twice again on Friday afternoon, damaging the front of the car in one spin at turn eight.

Qualified 14th and struggled with oversteer during the race. Was happier on the hard tyres later in the race but a pit-lane speeding penalty left him 17th.
